-//​Folksprak//​ is the name of a project that aims to construct an inter-Germanic zonal auxlang, a language that can be easily understood by any speaker of a Germanic language (a group numbering over 465 million native speakers with an additional 300 to 900 million speaking English as a second language) without ever having learned it. You don't believe that's possible? Here's an example: if you are a (native) speaker of English, German, Dutch, Swedish, Norwegian, Danish, Icelandic, Afrikaans, Yiddish or some other Germanic language (see a [[wp>​List_of_Germanic_languages|complete list]]) there'​s a great chance that you will know what a sentence like //„Ik hav skrivt en buk“// is supposed to mean.+//​Folksprak//​ is the name of a project that aims to construct an inter-Germanic zonal auxlang, a language that can be easily understood by any speaker of a Germanic language (a group numbering over 465 million native speakers with an additional 300 to 900 million speaking English as a second language) without ever having learned it.
